Re: only if you ignore UNISON
I moved from Poland to UK some 13 years ago. The courts in Poland were politicized since WWII (one of the things Poles have Yalta to thank for) and there was no proper cleanup of judiciary after the fall of the iron curtain. The current new legislation is a very clumsy attempt to make it slightly more obvious and create venue to get rid of politically appointed judges - be replacing them with new politically appointed judges, so not much improvement here. Except for making it painfully obvious how things worked and how they will work.
